Facebook blocked an ad that promoted a song critical of President Joe Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal, raising questions about how it applies its advertising rules.
The social media giant twice prohibited Five For Fighting’s John Ondrasik from purchasing an ad to promote his new single “Blood On My Hands.” Facebook claimed the song, which slams the Biden administration for abandoning hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies, “violated their policy on either politics or social issues.” The song singles out Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.
Facebook’s advertising policies state that “Ads must not contain content that exploits crises or controversial political or social issues for commercial purposes.” But the company frequently allows political ads on its platform. A cursory review shows Facebook hosted multiple ads from Black Lives Matter and leftist organization Demand Justice promoting abortion and calling for checks on police. A Wall Street Journal report found that Facebook maintains a list of almost six million public figures who are exempted from content moderation regulations.https://freebeacon.com/media/facebook-blocks-ad-for-song-critical-of-bidens-afghanistan-withdrawal/
